IndyCar pace car rides with Dr Pepper

Dr Pepper gave me the chance to take a wild ride in a pace car around the Honda Indy Toronto 2011 street race course. These cars can really move around the course and the drivers do a great job showing a little of what it must be like to join the IndyCar drivers in an actual race. I loved how as these guys are screaming around the track, we move sideways as the car maneuvers around the corners, hugging the concrete barriers and the guy is carrying on a normal conversation with us, telling us about the course and it's traits. It was really fun.

We joined with a few reporters from BlogTO for the exciting afternoon run around the track. This is what rush hour traffic should really be like! I think our driver was IndyCar Lights' Josef Newgarden.
